Hi,

If the screen does not change either by moving the mouse or tapping the keyboard, reboot the computer.

Press and hold the power button until the computer is off.

Power on.

    How do i set my timer for my screensaver-when my laptop is idle?


    The option is under Screen saver options or there is an idle time shut off selection under Power Saver options as well. When you select your screen saver there is are specific options to customize how it shows and how long before it activates. Some screen savers have more options than others.

    I am trying to SCAN a photo and save it to my SCREEN SAVER and at the same time enlarge it to fit the entire screen.


    The photos in your computer can be used as screen savers (those files that pop up when you are idle).
    1. Right click on your desktop and choose personalize.
    2. Select Screen Saver
    3. Select Photos
    4. Click OK

    All of the photos in your pictures folder will be your screen saver.

    If what you want is this picture to be your background (the file that shows on your desktop all of the time)
    1. Right click on your desktop
    2. Select personalize
    3. Select Desktop Background
    4. Change the "Location" to Pictures from its setting of Windows Backgrounds
    5. Select a picture
    6.Click OK. It is automatically sized to your desktop.

    I need to restore icons on desktop, tried to do so, nothing works. The screen saver has covered the entire desktop face. cannot remove it.


    I am not sure that the screen saver is making problems.
    Screen savers turn on after at least one minute of no activity, and turn off when you move your mouse or press a button on your keyboard.

    Start your PC in 'SAFE MODE' . Are there your desktop icons?
    Disable or uninstall the screen saver and and restart in 'Normal mode'.

    Regards.

    thats because Acer put their own screen saver on when building them, it's not part of windows.

    I'm sure a google search will come up with an Acer screen saver
